Palmetto Whiskey, 44.65%

Price: $30 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Palmetto distillery has been making ‘moonshine' products so far, and now they have some spirit aged in new French oak. Aromas of sweet pastry dough, new rubber, horehound, and bitter orange make for an intriguing nose. The mouth is fiery hot, thin in body, and tends to stay that way through to the end. The horehound blends with rye bitterness to make this a bit medicinal. Hot for sipping, but should make a very good Old Fashioned.
